away. it was a little brighter and bigger. boy, you just can't get around the cloud deck sometimes. i hope you had a chance to look at it. it was a beauty. it's mostly cloudy in washington, 67 degrees with an east wind averaging 12 miles per hour, that onshore easterly wind is going to bring the marine layer in from the ocean, that means an awful lot of cloud cover coming your way for your sunday. very limited sunshine. here's your sunday planner, patchy fog in the morning, startoff temperatures upper 50s and low 60s. plenty of clouds through noontime. i think later on in the afternoon, we may be able to get a couple breaks of sunshine, the further north you go. the better your chances of seeing the sun tomorrow. drifting away from the city of washington right now, these showers in part, western maryland are going to stay far, far away from us. the showers we contended with earlier today are powerhouse thunderstorms rolling off the
outer banks of north carolina. they will not be bothering from this point forward. late tonight into early tomorrow morning, and again, that onshore easterly wind will bring the cloud cover in, it may bring a little patch of drizzle or two for you folks along the blue ridge into the shenandoah valley. keep that in mind for tomorrow. not looking for rain, more clouds than drops as i would explain it. high pressure working its way offshore. more clouds than a rain threat for monday. rain threat returns as we get toward tuesday and wednesday. overnight increasing clouds, patchy fog by morning time. wakeup temperatures upper 50s and low 0s. tomorrow, more clouds than sunshine, but if you need to get something done outside, not much of anything in the way of a rain threat. i think you'll see a peak or two from time to time. the all important seven-day forecast. rain chances that we do need back for tuesday and wednesday, and then very nice to finish out the weekend, sort of slide us
into next weekend. temperatures in the low to mid-70s, drying out once again. can you stay ahead of weather by following me on twitte twitter @chuckbell4. we didn't have a 6:00 news, but i was tweeting out where the raindrops were. >> super moon, once a year? >> this one won't be this big again for another 29 years. 20 something years. >> if you missed it, you missed it. still ahead on news 4 tonight. dan shows us how the caps bumped off the rangers.

side. third period now, score tied at 2, and mike green provides the power. the slapper in there for the goal, the capitals hold on for the 3-2 win. they even the series at two games a piece, thanks to a trio of young guns coming up large. >> we needed to step up. it was important that we got here. and the guys that need to start sparring. alex is one of them, myself, and nicki. it was good. >> the big guns, we scored some big goals for us, and the foot soldiers and played good defense. >> you work for those, and we finally get one at the right time. game over green, i guess. mike green. great s a game breaker, makes a great shot and ends up being on goal. >> has a good ring to it. rmgs forget take back the park, take back the nats.
